We already know more than a million people are not getting social care they need, and this is only set to get worse as politicians in Westminster fail to act. Shouting at each other doesn't get older people the care they need.

"Thankfully, there are many Labour Members of Parliament along with many Conservative MPs who have joined together with Liberal Democrats to call for a cross-party commission on the NHS and social care crisis. Surely, in a Parliament with no Government majority, we all have a responsibility to try to solve this problem?"
